If you are an economics transfer student, you will take classes required for our
Spokane Community College A.A. degree. When you register for classes, use the A.A.
degree worksheet; it will help you decide which classes to take. We assume you are
definitely planning to continue on to a four-year college or university to receive a
bachelor's in economics or business administration. Once you know which college or
university you plan to transfer to, work closely with a counselor or a department faculty
advisor so that you can be assured that your classes are transferring the way you want
them to transfer. The majority of students will take:
- Business Statistics 217 under Quantitative Reasoning Skills
BCS 110 or CS 101
- Economics 201 under Social Sciences
- Economics 202, Accounting 101, and Accounting 102 as electives.
The math requirement will be either:
- Math 111 Pre-Calculus 1
Math 124 Calculus and Analytic Geometry
- or -
- Math 201 Intro. To Finite Math and
- Math 202 Survey of Calculus
Again, check with a counselor or department faculty advisor.
You may wish to consider the Eastern Washington University articulation agreement in place with our A.A.S. programs:
Once you obtain the A.A.S. degree in one of the five named areas, you have choices! You
can get a job with those marketable skills and knowledge you have gained and continue your
education in the evening or on the weekend. Or you can begin working toward your bachelors
of arts degree immediately. No matter what your choice is you have definitely earned your
A.A.S. degree from Spokane Community College.
As you proceed through the coursework for the A.A. degree at SCC, if you determine that

university, please contact Ginny Powers, department chair, at (509) 533-7365 or at
